The confidence interval around a point estimate from a regression equation (where "point estimate" = a + bX for a given value of X) is constructed as: Lower Limit of the confidence interval = Point estimate--(t-value x SE), while the Upper Limit of the confidence interval = Point estimate + (t-value x SE).
